    i`m guessing the fishing goes mostly for small mouth bass, brim and perch this time of year. the water is so shallow and clear. lots of good fishing a little lower down on the river at horse bend, have a great time with the family its sure to be a good weekend!

    they have good smallies, use spinners we go float once a year and i like to use a rootbeer crankbait works awesome, and you can also catch some channels off some of the deeper bluff holes
